Cheap and Chic of the Week: Coastal Living & Pier 1

I can always count on my great Charleston friend Mary Beth to have a Coastal Living in her beach bag – and I always ask to take a peak. On our most recent beach mission last month, Coastal Living had a spread that lead me to find a piece of cheap furniture that I had been looking for EVERYWHERE. 
The Dunmore Beach Club. Harbour Island, Bahamas. Just restored/redecorated by Caribbean local decorator Amanda Lindroth. 
And here it is … the photo that solved all my apartment decor issues. Looking at this picture it might not be clear what in this photo “saved me.” Bottom right hand corner, the slipper chair covered in Quadrille’s  “Petite Zig Zag” fabric in brown. And under the photo it read “slipper chair from Pier 1.” 
I have to be honest, Pier 1 may be one of the only decorating discount opportunities that I always forget about. Everything in there is always so over decorated, that I would rarely think of Pier 1 as a place to buy staples or basics. But here it is — the Audra Slipper Chair. Just what WB and I needed in the apartment. And I got two of them for $139 each!
Now eventually the plan will be to upholster the chairs–skirted, but for now they are sitting in the apartment “naked.” (sorry for the dark photo, a little cloudy in NYC this am) So to jazz them up whilst they remain white and uncovered I bought some $40 pillows from Roberta Roller Rabbit, and voila, a seating arrangement. I am thrilled with this “find,” what do you all think?
